Included in the "more" category was the Nisei Baseball Research Project. The NBRP booth showcased my new Kenichi Zenimura book, and also highlighted the "edu-tainment" projects of the organization, such as:
- Educational Curriculum: Diamonds in the Rough
- Documentary: Diamonds in the Rough, Zeni and the Legacy of Japanese-American Baseball with Host and Narrator - Pat Morita
- Movie: American Pastime
- Book: Through a Diamond: 100 years of Japanese American Baseball, by Kerry Yo Nakagawa
Among the masses who stopped by the booth was Ken Koshio, Taiko Drummer who performed on the Unity Stage earlier in the day. Because I was working the booth, I didn't get a chance to see him play. Next month he is scheduled to play at the Arizona Matsuri Festival. I'll be attending just as a spectator so I can thoroughly participate in and enjoy everything the Matsuri Festival has to offer. If you can, check it out:
